Our Unique Product

 CSU: We are sponsoring studies at CSU, consistently ranked in the top three veterinary schools in US News and World Report.
 Science-based and tested “Safe”: We have conducted the first scientific studies of CHO for dogs: our Phase 1 Study addressed safety and pharmacokinetics, and our Phase 2 Studies are addressing the treatment of epilepsy, osteoarthritis and pain management.
 Sustainable Product Made in the USA: Our product is organically grown and processed in the USA, unlike many CHO products found online, some of which are imported from an undisclosed country.
 Purity: Our product is made with three ingredients: CHO, a suspension oil and flavoring, while others may be derived from the leftovers of industrial hemp processing.
 Proprietary Strain: We are using a plant bred for our specific purposes which is classified as hemp.
 Consistency: Our product is consistent in its composition and quality.
 Freshness: Our product has a defined expiration date.
 Entourage Effect: We are using whole plant extract because we believe in the CHO entourage effect.
 Pedigree: Chief Veterinary Officer Stephanie McGrath, DVM, and Chief Science Officer Alan Shackelford, MD, are respected professionals in their respective fields.
